F rom the monsoonal rainforests of Papua New
Guinea to the frozen Antarctic wastes , Peli cases
perform in all conditions as Producer/Director and
Cameraman, Alexis Girardet explains….
Peli cases are renowned for their high quality, durability and
dependability in extreme conditions. Offering watertight,
dustproof and crushproof security, Peli Protector Cases are
sealed (to IP67) against moisture ingress and are tested to
military standards, most models have Nato stock numbers.
As the market leader in ruggedised protection, fi lm and
broadcast professionals have chosen Peli Cases for many
years for their outstanding performance in the harshest
conditions. Crush-proof, Dust-proof and now…Jungle proof
The jungles of Papua New Guinea tested the equipment,
including Peli cases, used by Patrick Hutton and Richard
Johnson during their 2014 expedition in aid of the PNG
focused charity ‘ChildFund’.
The pair walked and paddled from the Northern coast to
the Southern island of Daru using only ‘human power’, and
carrying all their vital supplies and fi lming equipment.
Peli cases were central to the protection of their vital hard
drives and memory cards throughout the expedition. The
versatility and ruggedness of the products was appreciated
by the team “We were both massively impressed with all
the units we took with us, without them we are confi dent
the footage would not be back safely in the UK. “
Patrick and Richard used Peli 0915 and 0945 memory card
cases along with Peli 1020 Microcases for their hard drives
and 1050 cases for peripheral equipment.
One extreme to another…
From the monsoonal rainforests of Papua New Guinea to
the Arctic wastes of the Siberian tundra, Peli cases perform
in all conditions as Producer/Director and Cameraman,
Alexis Girardet explains
“The key to working in these extreme and remote locations
is protecting your kit against the multitude of conditions
that are faced on a daily basis. I’ve been using Peli cases
for years now and nothing has even come close in terms
of protection and sheer quality. I know I can pack the most
delicate of camera kit in a Peli case and then forget about it
until needed. Not once has it let me down.”
Peli Products (UK) have invested in developing their
protective packaging services and now offer a wide
range of specialised foams to suit individual packaging
